Am I wrong, or was Travis' arm-triangle the first non-decision of the night?
I just didn't want to take over your thread!!

Yeah, first non-decision. I hope this is a sign of things to come for the main card!

Round 1:
From the outset Browne's size advantage is startling. Griggs charges forward with a flurry but nothing lands. A huge flying knee finds its mark for Browne, followed by a series of thai knees and a powerful trip. Browne advances into mount and locks in an arm triangle. It's deep and things don't look good for Griggs. The Strikeforce vet tries valiantly to survive but eventually succumbs to the tap. It's over, and just like that we have our first finish of the night.

Travis Browne def. Chad Griggs via submission (arm triangle) at 2:29 of round 1.


Wow, Travis is an animal!!!

I thought his nickname was "Hoppa" and I figured it was from DishTV's Hopper commercial, lol. Anyway, I looked it up and here's what he said about it:
He's a 6'7", 250 lb. flying beast! Great flying knee! I couldn't believe Griggs just gave him that arm...oh well...

Mark Bocek vs. John Alessio

Round 1:
And UFC 145 is officially underway. Alessio and Bocek circle and trade jabs to start things off. Bocek drops levels and shoots for a takedown. Alessio defends, but gives up his back in the process and Bocek drags him to the mat. Bocek advances to half guard and uncorks a series of short elbows. Alessio works his way back to full guard, but Bocek postures, lands a hard shot and gets back into half guard. Bocek transitions to Alessio's back and locks in a body triangle. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Bocek.

Round 2:
Alessio sprints out like he's looking for a superman punch, but decides to hold off at the last second. Alessio circles and finds his mark with a pair of one-twos. Alessio is starting to find his range with the jab now. Bocek senses it and shoots in for a big power double, landing in his opponent's guard. Back to half guard and then side control. Alessio transitions back to half guard before scrambling to his feet and charging forward with a flurry. Bocek changes levels again and pushes Alessio against the fence. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Bocek.

Round 3:
The message from Alessio's corner is simple: "Let's knock this motherf***er out, Johhny." Alessio apparently listened as he opens the round with a powerful counter left hand. But Bocek again shoots in and tosses Alessio to the mat, taking his back and looking for the choke. Bocek is completely controlling this fight. Alessio finally spins his way out to safety and stands. It's short lived though, as a bloodied Bocek drags the fight back down. Alessio sneaks out the back and turns up the pace. A minute left and Alessio probably needs to do something drastic. Bocek clinches against the fence and works his dirty boxing. Alessio disengages and misses with a wild right hand as the horn sounds. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Bocek.

Mark Bocek def. John Alessio via unanimous decision (30-27, 29-28, 30-27).

Mark Hominick vs. Eddie Yagin

Round 1:
Both fighters looking to trade early. Yagin is teeing away on the lead leg of Hominick, but he seems to be cut on his forehead. Yagin finds a home with another leg kick followed by an overhand right. Yagin drops Hominick with a huge uppercut and rushes in to finish. Hominick regains his composure and ties Yagin up, before pushing him off and standing. Blood is dripping from the face of both men now. Yagin is noticeably tired after that series but he continues to push forward. Hominick is bouncing around the center of the cage and seems to be back at 100-percent. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Yagin.

Round 2:
Yagin's pace is back up and he's swinging for the fences. Hominick avoids the wild shots and picks his shots from the outside. Yagin finds his mark with a leg kick-body kick combo, then follows with a right hand that floors Hominick. Yagin jumps into the Canadian's guard and looks for an opening, but can't find anything and eventually stands back up. Hominick charges forward with an uppercut that grazes his opponent. A hard body shot staggers Yagin back but Hominick doesn't follow-up. Thirty seconds left and the pace is picking up. Both men trade flurries and the crowd ignites. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Yagin.

Round 3:
Each fighter's face is an absolute mess as crowd welcomes in the final round. Yagin pushes forward with a wild flurry that barely misses. Hominick unloads a pair of jabs and sidesteps a spinning heel kick. Yagin scores with another powerful leg kick and charges into the pocket. Yagin eats a jab and telegraphs a wild spinning back fist. Hominick is finding his mark at range but he probably needs to do more if he wants to win this. Hominick tags Yagin with a salvo of hard shots, but Yagin takes it and fires back. Yagin's face is smattered with blood and he looks absolutely exhausted. The horn sounds and Hominick takes the center of the cage for some post-fight push-ups. MMA Fighting scores it 10-9 Hominick.

Eddie Yagin def. Mark Hominick via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

Damn, I really thought Mark had the edge. Well, it was still a great fight, this is the FotN so far, isn't it?

Miguel Torres vs. Michael McDonald

Round 1:
Herb Dean is our referee. Both fighters staying patient to open the round. McDonald initiates first and misses wildly. McDonald charges forward with power shots but nothing lands cleanly. Torres backs off, then lunges in with a left hook. Torres slips, counters, and McDonald circles away. From out of nowhere, McDonald rockets a massive pair of counter uppercuts and Torres instantly drops! He's out! McDonald rushes in and unloads a few more shots before Dean stops the action. What an impressive performance from the 21-year-old.

Michael McDonald def. Miguel Torres at 3:18 of round 1.

He really came on strong at the end, but I guess the judges thought Yagin edged it.

Sorry, Cathy!...but you have to admit, that's pretty funny. Poor Brendan, that's going to be his "Rashad" moment played over and over!

For a second there it looked like he had Ben, but Big Ben caught him.
